An Award! For Me? Thank you!

How exciting!  I started this blog a week ago and I had no idea how fun and rewarding it would be to connect with all of you.  So, needless to say I was super surprised to be nominated for my first award!

A BIG THANK YOU to the awesome ladies over at Fashionably in First GradePocketful of Centers, and Back in Fourth for nominating me!

As per the rules, I have to share 7 random facts about myself:

1.  I always set 3 alarms and have my mom call me on the first day of school to make sure I wake up.  For some reason I always think I'm gonna oversleep even though after 10 years it's never happened.

2.  I have a self diagnosed case of OCD in concern to leaving things on in my house.  It never fails, I get down the road and think " Oh NO!  I left ____ on" and then I turn around to find that the iron, curling iron, fan, Christmas lights, etc. are all turned off.  Never once have I come back to something plugged in, but I would obsess over it if I didn't and ruin my day.  Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this:)

3.  I am absolutely terrified of snakes and all things reptile. I once drove a friend back to college with her very large pet snake in a pillow case in my back seat.  Worst car ride ever!!!

4.  It takes me forever to get out of bed in the morning.  I check my e-mail and make my moves on the countless games I'm playing before getting out of bed. Gonna have to break that habit.

5.  I think I could eat a burrito bowl from Chipotle EVERY DAY for the rest of my life. 

6. I want to marry a man with the last name Bradshaw, so I will be Carrie Bradshaw!  SJP has some killer style.  I was C-R-A-Z-Y about S.I.T.C. to the point that I bought the cutesy merchandise when the show was in it's hey day.  

7.  I LOVE all kinds of music and if I ever win the lottery, I'm gonna take all my besties and travel the world going to concerts.

Now on to my nominations:

Ha, ha! I'm right there with you on 2,3, and 4. I rarely sleep the night before the first day of school. I set my alarm and my husband calls me to make sure I actually got up!!!
